Dear AG Gallery’s loyal Customers and all art lovers,
Thank you so much for staying in touch with us by keeping your contact in our mailing list. We truly hope that every one of you are safe from the novel COVID-19 and staying home as much as you can right now.
AG Gallery is pleased to announce our upcoming group exhibition “YOKAI NEIGHBORS” is opening as scheduled on April 4, 2020. *The gallery however is temporary closed and there will be no opening reception party.
It is our first exhibition which attempt to introduce seies of Yokai as something that is not just scary supernatural monsters, spirits, and demons, but something that live and exist very close to us in our everyday lives. By knowing them deeper through this exhibition they can enrich your everyday life like doing housework, cooking, cleaning, going to walk, doing trash because according to Japanese folklore there are various Yokai in this world existing almost everywhere we go.
It has been a big challenge for all of us for this past weeks. We hope that by opening the exhibition and sharing new art with you, they will bring you some joy and we hope we can contribute to cheer up our community, in stead of canceling the whole show.
Due to New York governor’s order relating to globally spreading of the novel covid-19, AG Gallery and all other galleries and non essential businesses in NYC is ordered to close until further notice. AG Gallery will reopen when the city removes the restriction.
The group exhibition “Yokai Neighbors” is originally scheduled to be on view April 4, 2020 ~ May 17, 2020, but in order to give enough time and chance for the artists and our customers, we have decided to extend the exhibition period. AG Gallery will keep the upcoming exhibition open as scheduled, and the exhibition will be extended (the dade will be TBA). Therefore, following exhibitions scheduled for 2020 will also be pushed back and they will be rescheduled as well.
While gallery is closed, AG Gallery will try to enrich the online materials of the exhibition and available work information on our website and SNS including our Instagram (@AGGalleryBrooklyn) more than usual, so you can experience some part of exhibition from home, so please make sure to go check them out.
